It seems pixel art is everywhere nowadays, but good pixel art seems hard to come by. Luckily, there is a new project over on Kickstarter that looks like it will deliver some amazing pixel art. Triple Cherry Games is using the crowdsourcing site to help make their game, “Rescue the Prince,” a reality. Rescue the Prince follows the story of a princess named Selene who has set out to find and rescue princes who have mysteriously gone missing. Along the way, she will have to fight dragons and storm castles; while at the same time, will need to learn how to manage new magical abilities.
With art and music that mesh perfectly with the story, Triple Cherry Games also implements just the right amount of humor to not only keep the player interested but fully engaged. They are using what they call a “non-isometric 2.5D view” that allows the player to easily view and manipulate their environment, to achieve their goals. The game is a turn-based puzzle game that requires creativity to rescue all the princes and defeat the five evil dragons.
Like most Kickstarter campaigns, there are a number of tiers that you can back and the best part is not all of them require you to be a gamer. For instance, the first tier are wallpapers for your computer and mobile devices for only $1.60, while the second tier gets you a copy of their beautifully crafted soundtrack (and the wallpapers) for only $3.20.
So, if traversing a gorgeous pixel art landscape while saving the day is something you think that you can get behind, then head over to Triple Cherry Games’ Kickstarter page and take a look at all the hard work they’ve put into the game so far. The game—if it acquires the modest $15,000 they are asking for—will be released in March 2015 and will be available for Mac, Windows and Linux.
